Tuesday 12th January

Good morning Year 3.  Today there is some Maths, English, RE and PE for you to have a go at.  Make sure you upload your work onto Seesaw so that I can have a look at what you have been doing.




We are moving on a little from our timetables to apply our knowledge to more difficult problems.  Now I know that we won't all be extremely confident with our 3, 4 and 8 timetables just yet so make sure you use the multiplication grid available to help you with the answers.  There is a PowerPoint for you to have a look through and to engage with and an initial activity with 3 levels of difficulty - choose one of these to complete.  There is then the main activity which has 3 levels of difficulty for you to work through.  See how far through the questions you can get and let me see what you have done via Seesaw.


I have also included the answers so you can self-check and mark to see how well you got on like we sometimes do together in class.



Grammar Starter - Fixing sentences


To warm up for this English session, have a look at the worksheet below and correct the mistakes which have been made in the sentences.  The answers are given on the second page of the document for you to check your work after you have completed it

Keep an eye out on Seesaw for a video of me and the children in school reading our class book together.  We will record this and upload it for you all.  If the video is too large for Seesaw, we might have to put it on the Video Resource Centre of the school website.  I will let you know where to find it via Seesaw once we have sorted it.


Today I want you to take some time to read and digest our new story for this English topic.  Have a look at the story for yourselves using the PowerPoint below.

Once you have read the story, I want you to imagine that you have the chance to meet the boy from the story.  Think of and write down 5 questions that you might ask him about his experience.  When you have done this, if possible, ask someone at home to ask you these questions and you put yourself into the position of the Stoneage Boy.  Try to answer these questions as best you can.  Try to design questions which allow for more than just a 'yes or no' answer.  You could even ask someone to record you giving these answers and post it onto Seesaw.  


When you have finished verbally giving your answers, perhaps look back at any video you might record and build on your answers writing them down underneath the questions you have created.  Don't forget the basics of capital letters and writing in sentences.  Although it isn't an extended written piece, we still need to remember to include everything that we should be including in our writing as Year 3 children.


Attached is a home learning lesson which has been provided to us by the Archdiocese.  Have a read through and choose one of the activities to complete.  Make sure you show me what you have done on the Seesaw app.



Show us that you have kept active today.  Joe Wicks has started his live PE sessions again on his Youtube channel so this could be one way that you keep yourselves moving today.  It can be anything you want though as long as you are getting yourselves active.  Remember to wrap up if you do anything outside.
